teaser tuesday (44)

Tuesday, July 6, 2010 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!


“A young fellow a year or two older than Meggy, wearing a brown doublet and hose of strawberry red, pounded down the stairs. He grinned at Meggy and his hair flopped into his eyes. ‘Roger,’ said Master Ambrose, ‘this be…err…my…err, daughter. See to her. I must return to my work.’”


-p. 9 of Karen Cushman’s Alchemy and Meggy Swann
